Prerequisite: Master of Arts in Education: Educational Counseling with Embedded Pupil Personnel Services Credential in School Counseling

A required transcript evaluation of students’ courses will determine which courses will count toward the PPS: School Psychology Credential.

Requirements are the same as for Azusa Pacific University’s Educational Specialist in School Psychology with Embedded Master of Arts in Education: Educational Psychology and Pupil Personnel Services Credential in School Psychology program, with the exception that no graduate research project is required.

Students must pass the PRAXIS II (School Psychology) Exam with a score of 147 or greater. Credential-only candidates may be eligible to become a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP); candidates are advised to contact the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) certification board to determine if their degrees meet NCSP requirements.
